What is it about?

This article discusses a method to find the optimal size of an energy storage system (ESS) that minimizes the costs. The ESS can be integrated into a microgrid that is connected to other renewable energy sources. The ESS reduces the total costs because it charges in low-price periods and discharges in high-price periods. Also, it increases the microgrid reliability and availability. This article compares the microgrid reliability before and after integrating the ESS.

Why is it important?

This article proves that the energy storage system (ESS) enhances the microgrid reliability and it compares the reliability before and after integrating the ESS.


The mathematical equations in this article have been formulated in an easy way. Also, the explanations are simple and easy to understand.
